Sonic Unleashed

I have finally rented the new Sega game starring everyone's favorite hedgehog, Sonic. For those of you who are not familiar with Sonic, the past two years have been busts. Sega has created Sonic games ranging from average to horrible. In doing so, Mario has unfortunately become more popular than our speedy friend. However, Sega has revived him and has created an excellent game to play in Sonic Unleashed. In this game, the blue blur was racing to Dr. Eggman's (the villain in the Sonic series) lair. As he was chasing him, Dr. Eggman led Sonic into a trap where he was transformed into a Werehog . Dr. Eggman form outer space then shot the earth with his mega gun to release a weird creature so he can conquer the world and broke the planet into seven pieces. Then, he throws Sonic who is still in his werehog form back to earth. Sonic lands and falls and a small animal who is very frightened at first but realizes that Sonic is his friend. The animal has amnesia so Sonic tries to help him find his real identity. Fortunately, Sonic finds out he only turns into his werehog form at night and is his regular self during the day. So, it is up to him to save the world and put it back together.

I played this game and found it very enjoyable. The day stages have Sonic speed through these levels and the night stages have you fighting with different bad guys. As a werehog, Sonic is stronger and has agility. As Sonic, he is as fast as ever. I would not recommend any of the previous Sonic games. However, if you are looking for some good, clean video game entertainment, Sonic Unleashed is for you. Good job, Sega and Sonic Team! Finally, you have given us a game that we will enjoy. I will look forward to the next Sonic game, Sonic and the Black Knight.
